Cant use URL snooper
« on: April 12, 2005, 04:19:50 AM »
Hi!

I have WinXP home edition, with a 56K net connection.

I just dl the software "URL Snooper" and pasted in some URLs with embedded media for sniffing: -

http://www.ifilm.com...mp;mediaSize=compact

The parent url of the above link is: -

http://www.ifilm.com/ifilmdetail/2656367

and some similar links from the same site.

I couldnt get any multimedia links from the page, though it has a vid.

Please help out and reply if its only me with the error or if its the ite that has got some security.

i'm generally really bad at finding the addresses, and the forum address posted in one of the top posts in the forum is the best place to get help for such things, but i found this one using url snooper while playing the video from ifilm site in Windows Media highest quality setting. note that the only way to get this is to run url snooper while the video actually downloads and plays through your browser.  if url snooper wont sniff your network traffic on dialup you'll have to either try the tricks to get dialup to work with url snooper as discussed in the streaming media recording forum or else ask for help on that streaming media recording forum.

mms://ifilm.wmod.llnwd.net/a65/o1/portal/2656367_200.asf
mms (http format)
streambox vcr 1.30 (non turbo)
7.1mb

note that i used streambox vcr 1.30 and had to specify mms (http format) instead of auto.
if you don't know what im talking about, then check the other posts in this section and go visit the streaming media recording forum.

Thanks, an I've been trying at ezboards but for some reason i am unable to register there.

Thanks especially for the "load url snooper only when the vid is actually playing" part. Thanks again.

And yes, i could understand each an every word you typed there except the weirdness about "mms (http format)". I do know that http & mms are two different protocols. Whenever you encouter a guy called "The Winster" on any forum, you know that that person has got some elementary knowledge on everything that the forum is about.

But what touched me is your humility with "if you couldnt understand..." thingy. No admins are so much friendly. best of luck...

the part about  "mms (http format)" refers to an option in streambox vcr.
normally when you paste a url in streambox vcr you tell it that the protocol is "auto" and let it guess it,
but with some you need to manually tell it.  in this case i had to manually specify "mms (http format)",
and i also had to use streambox vcr 1.30 which is better at mms files than the more recent streambox vcr 1.31.
other windows media download tools may be able to download it also.
